Warmachine War Games
Welcome to Caern, the steampunk world of the Warmachine tabletop game. The human kingdoms fight with each other and the Hordes, employing constructs of steel and iron known as warjacks. Two or more players can do battle in Warmachine war games, but there will be only one victor.What is the Warmachine game?
Warmachine is a tabletop strategy game published by Privateer Press. Positions are maintained using plastic and metal miniatures. Spells and other abilities are played from a hand of cards. Attack success is determined with dice rolls. Starter sets are available, and rulebooks, cards, dice, and miniatures can be purchased separately. In addition to the Warmachine core factions, there are Horde factions.
